Tuesday P'ball - March 8, 2011

Eleven players were in action today: Peter, Gary, Steve, Ralph, Mike, Bob H, Jan, Anne, Albert, Sharon and Ron. We had friendly skies and the courts were dry for a change. So, lots of matches followed - some fiercely fought. We destroyed two pickleballs, scuffed up some paddles and left welts on a few players who made the mistake of 'receiving' overhand kill shots while hanging around the kitchen. Advice: if you decide to serve up a lob from the non-volley line, be sure to get it out of your opponent's reach, or be prepared to accept an almost guaranteed torso tattoo.

Albert and Buckeye, Spidy and Cupcake, Peter and Gary, Jan. Miscellaneous: Spidy was was given an unofficial administrative warning because he made some colorful, comments about a ball which had been cleverly marked with a red a heart on it. Pit Bull managed to store several p'balls under her Spandex top along with other 'equipment'. Removing the balls for play caused quite a stir.

We played for 2-1/2 hours finishing off the day - when the crowd thinned  down - with a few "A" games the last of which was won by Stevie Wonder and Albert 11-9 over Spidy & Spike. A rematch is on the horizon. Looks like we'll be playing on Friday, March 11, 2011. Spike
